Reliability, Availability and Maintaninablity (RAM) Study

A well designed and properly implemented optimisation programme can significantly lower project costs. RAM modelling assess a production systems capabilities, whether it is in operation or still in the design phase. The results from RAM modelling will identify possible causes of production losses and can examine possible system alternatives.

 

What is RAM Modelling?

RAM modelling can simulate the configuration, operation, failure, repair and maintenance of equipment. 

 

The inputs to RAM modelling will included physical components, equipment configuration and maintenance philosophy in a system and the outputs can determine average production of the system over the facility or vessel life. RAM studies will generate sufficient data on which to base decisions for possible system changes that may increase system efficiency and therefore increasing profits.

 

Our Approach to RAM 

Our engineers will liaise with you to identify you needs and develop the basis for the RAM model. We use tools and methodology of both functional and dysfunctional analyses to agree upon model configuration and stat the modelling exercise.

 

Our team can use a variety of modelling tools from RAM studies depending on your requirements. Once a base case model is established, sensitivity cases can be used to really add value and do so cost effectively in a controlled manner prior to design changes.

 

Analysis of RAM models can generate results and recommendations to improve the design, through changes in equipment configuration, or to achieve operating targets through changes to maintainability and operability. Communication throughout all stages with you and our engineers is continuous and leads to optimum results.
